10-year high and treasury secretary jack lew is on cnbc saying he's watching the volatility in the stock market and he does not see it as a danger to the u.s. economy. he says it's simply a reaction to the slowdown in china and that the u.s. economy is doing well and that it is insulated from the troubles in the chinese economy and as a result of that he feels as though the market volatility will kind of smooth out as the market adjusts to the fact that china is simply slowing down. they may come in at a growth rate of 6% to 7% which is still pretty darn good. mexican game developers are hitt g back at donald trump after the candidate's comments on illegal immigrants. they've come up with a new video game that allows users to throw soccer balls, cactus leaves and tequila bottles at mr. trump. it's called trumpilo and it is selling like hot cakes. [ laughter ] >> no word on whether you can get it here in the u.s., but the game developers that made that
game up are now millionaires. >> well, there you go. >> okay. >> look at that. we do have the 2:00 press conference from mr. trump later on. maybe we'll get a chance to ask him about it. >> there's capitalism for you. >> all right, sue. >> entrepreneurship. >> thank you. >> right? >> we try to run it. i cannot believe the people i see running around the town when the weather is like this and the air quality. >> once again, we do have that air quali alert in effect and when it'shis t hot you have to exercise either early in the morning or in the evening because during the heat of the day it is just so, so uncomfortable outside. today is day five of this heat wave and we will be back in the low 90s and feeling more like the mid-90s when you factor in the relief, but relief is finally on the way and 88 degrees in midtown under sunny skies and once again, an air quality alert and this time it's for most of new jersey and it
runs through 11:00 p.m. and you'll want to take it easy during the height of this afternoon. otherwise, we're 88 and 89 at jfk and 86 over into nassau county and morristown, 87 is the current reading in bridgewater and right now feeling like 90 in morristown and feeling like 90 on the island and lots of sunshine for today as high pressure continues to hang on, and notice just to the north, right here, there is a cool front and as the day goes on, the front will drop down into the region and late this afternoon and into the evening hours and it is a scattered shower or a thunderstorm and definitely not a washup, but if you could see a thunderstorm it could produce locally heavy rain and more importantly, behind the front we start to cool it down and the humidity drop, as well and as we head into the labor day holiday weekend it looks absolutely fantastic. i think saturday is the nicest day because temperatures will be right around average and the humidity is so low so it's so comfortable, but that changes as we head toward sunday and the
southerly winds kick in and we start to warm it up and we're back into the upper 80s and by monday, labor day, 90 degrees and the humidity makes a comeback and this could be the first day of yet another heat wave as we head into next week, but here's future tracker and you can see lots of sunshine early this afternoon and as we head into the late afternoon hours and into the evening hours and a couple of showers and thunderstorms pop up generally west and north of the city and tonight we're partly to mostly cloudy and as we head into friday the winds go northeasterly and we'll start off with clouds in the morning and a few showers here or there and during the afternoon hours we're partly sunny and maybe a couple of showers around, but most of us are dry, but with the northwest wind flow temperatures tomorrow are in the low 80s. today it's hot, 92 degrees and last day of this heat wave tonight and we're at 75 so it will be another warm night and here is the extended forecast and temperatures coming down so comfortable. by saturday we're to 82 degrees
and we start warming it up monday, tuesday, wednesday of next week back to the 90s and enjoy the cooldown. back to you. >> "new york live" is up next at 12:30. >> a lucille ball biopic is on the way. can you guess which oscar winner will be playing the i love lucy star? we've got the answer. before you head to the u.s. open, we have the stadium's must-try foods and plus, puppies are here and they are the cutest ones i have seen yet. >> i saw some. >> cutest than all of the others, huh, sarah? >> i'm in love again. why are you doing this to me? they're so cute. >> we look forward to the show. thanks, sarah. >> we'll be right back. >> a quick programming note, don't forget the giants wrap up the preseason with the patriots tonight and you can watch it on nbc 4 starting at 7:30 and nbc's prime time lineup will air on cozi tv and the cable channels listed on your screen.
